A Royal Affair

The line-up for the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival was just revealed today, and on that list you'll find A Royal Affair, a historical drama from writer and director Nikolaj Arcel (who wrote the original Swedish adaptation of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo starring Noomi Rapace). The film is already playing across the pond with some great reviews praising the film, and those attending TIFF in September will get a chance to see Mads Mikkelsen, Alicia Vikander and Mikkel Følsgaard in a period drama that is apparently a bit more gritty, sexy and provocative than most films of this nature. Watch the trailer below!

Here's the first trailer for Nikolaj Arcel's A Royal Affair from YouTube via The Film Stage:

Nikolaj Arcel (screenwriter of the original version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) directs A Royal Affair from a script he also wrote with Rasmus Heisterberg, based on the novel Prinsesse af blodet. The film chronicles the scandalous love triangle between a queen (Alicia Vikander), her German doctor (Mads Mikkelsen), and the mad King of Denmark (Mikkel Følsgaard). The secret love between the Queen and her physician just might spark a revolution that will change their nation. The film has already hit theaters in the UK and though it will premiere at TIFF 2012, no official US release date has been revealed. Interested?

This looks really interresting. Films usually come out in Ireland at the same time as the UK, but I haven't seen this advertised. Hope it gets a wide release
